School Bus Driver Shortage Impacting Some Bus Routes
We have been informed by some of our school bus operators about a shortage of drivers as we begin the new school year. Consequently, there may be delays on certain bus routes, varying in severity. If you have an account on the Transportation Portal (https://busplannerweb.torontoschoolbus.org/), you can subscribe to receive notifications regarding delays on your child’s route. Please note that this depends on the bus operator posting the delay on the portal.
Our bus companies are committed to providing timely and accurate information so that families can decide whether to wait for the bus or make alternative travel arrangements. We understand that these driver shortages, affecting school boards across the province, are impacting your daily school routine. Our Bus Operators are actively training more drivers on a weekly basis and anticipate that most routes will return to their regular schedules soon.
We appreciate your patience during this period.
